. speaker. i appreciate you allowing me this time today. yesterday was tax day. and i've got taxes on my mind, mr. speaker. you know as most folks in this chamber do that h.r. 25, the fair tax, is the most widely co-sponsored, most widely supported fundamental tax reform legislation in the house and in the senate. both the house and the senate. 64 of our colleagues in the house, mr. speaker, have put their name on h.r. 25, the fair tax. eight of our senate colleagues have put their name on h.r. 25, the fair tax. the fair tax is a revolutionary proposal, mr. speaker, in that it takes all of the power of the tax code out of washington, d.c., and returns it to men and women back home. you know we can manipulate the behavior of anyone in america through the tax code. if i want folks to wear more pink ties and fewer blue tie, i'll subsidize pink ties for 250% and tax blue ties for 250% and we'll change behavior overnight. do you remember, mr. speaker, when we had the electric vehicle tax credit back in 2010? it was a $7,500 tax credit. we said we are going to give $7,500 to every american to
tax, that that money be spent on american made steel, con secrete -- concrete, bridges, buses, trains, whatever. it could work. one example, in the bill there was an opportunity for amtrak to buy new locomotives. about half a billion dollars to be spent on these new locomotives. in that section of law, one sentence was added that said these must be 100% american made. no one was making locomotives in america before that. but siemens, the german corporation, one of the biggest manufacturers in the world said, oh, half a billion dollar well, can make locomotives in america, sure. in sacramento, california, they opened a manufacturing plant, probably somewhere between 200 and 300 people working there today manufacturing 100% american made locomotives and on may 134, three years after they began this process, the first 100% american made locomotive in probably more than a century rolled onto the tracks of america. we can do this. h.r. 549 will provide that opportunity, using american-taxpayer money. i have another bill that does the same for wind and solar projects. we can do these things

piece tax that many in this country have been determined not to keep an open mind but to keep a closed mind as to the possibility that authorities are now confirming that radical islam was the motivation this attack. >> correct. the political correctness on this can be traced back to a couple years. you have a situation, the major hassan situation there. you you have a situation we are calling it the government is calling it workplace violence even in the army's after action report. this is islamic terrorist that in our military that kills 13 americans is determined to be engaged in workplace violence. we were all a bit relieved when the president of the united states said those response responsible for those acts in boston were terrorists but jihadist, muslim terrorist, never come out of his mouth. that is because the narrative doesn't fit what the administration and what some on the left are trying to say. you are right. some of the reports had to focus on the religious belief of the bombers. why is that? that is what motivates them. they are jihadists. as soon as we start recognizin

. it translates to hundreds of thousands who can't pay taxes, and support their families on their own time. the evidence also indicated that in addition to employment levels, illegal immigration drove down wage levels. studies by the federal reserve bank of atlanta, for example, showed that illegal immigration was attributable to the nearly $960 per year decrease in wage levels of documented georgians. in leisure and hospitality industries, it was $1520. for doctors and lawyers, and may not be a lot. , $80esident obama observed per month is significant for most families. it goes towards groceries, rent, gasoline. recent history shows that grant of lawful status further increases the influx of illegal immigrants, forcing out unskilled laborers and thereby depressing the wage and employment levels of those americans. in addition to that, that leads to more americans, depending on the government for subsistence. before thece commission is that grant of status is not without substantial cost to the american worker. thank you. as with all witnesses, the statement will be made part of the record
possessed in this country? and who would pay for it? would gun owners be subject to still more fees or taxes for exercising their second amendment rights? who would have access to the so-called registry? would the public know who owns guns and who does not? who would ensure that this sensitive information is protected and not used for political purposes, and how? we do not know the answers to these questions, but we do know that such restrictions will not prevent the next tragedy. we should not start down this dangerous road. what should we do instead? i have a few suggestions. instead of undermining the second amendment, mr. president, congress should focus its attention on three areas. first, i believe that robust prosecution of violent criminals is the best deterrent for violent crime. prosecutors should punish to the fullest extent of the law individuals who misuse guns, knives or anything else to commit violent crimes. there should be no leniency, mr. president, what ever for the commission of such crimes. secondly, we should examine and address any deficiencies -- and we have them -- i
